Jacobs Farm was founded in 1980 as a small organic family farm dedicated to growing fresh, high quality, delicious food without damaging the environment. Forty years later, our unwavering pursuit of social change in farming and business practices remains at the core of our company. We’re proud of our ongoing support of farmers and their communities.
Early pioneers in organic farming methods, organic certification, and Fair Trade practices, husband and wife co-founders Larry Jacobs and Sandra Belin began pursuing a healthier way of farming after Larry fell unconscious as a result of exposure to toxic pesticides. Since then, they’ve dedicated themselves to farming without the use of harmful chemicals.
Farming That Sustains
Practitioners of sustainable growth, we have expanded to include eight sites encompassing 471 acres of crops and an additional one million square feet of greenhouse space along California’s Central Coast. Our approach to agriculture includes using sound business practices and modern organic farming methods. Yet, we continue to take an artisanal approach, putting flavor and soil preservation at the heart of our farming practices.
Committed to our roots as one of the first certified organic farms, we remain passionate about our desire to benefit people, communities, and the environment for generations to come.
